What the Dickens! : A Christmas Killing
It’s December 1843 and your bosses, Scrooge and Marley, have invited you to an obligatory work-do. There are to be no frivolities and absolutely no mention of ‘Christmas’ or ‘good will’. Already feeling uneasy about the dinner, things turn from bad to worse when one of your employers winds up dead! Before Scrooge can utter the words, ‘Bah Humbug!’, can you work out whodunit and why so that everyone can go home for the holidays?
Itinary of the evening
Below is an example of a standard format for our murder mystery evenings. Times and events can be altered to your specifications. The evening will last approximately 2.5 - 3 hours.
The characters interact with the audience during the course of the meal, so the audience members are able to pose questions in order to gain clues as to who the murderer is. The audience is best split into separate tables, so everyone can see the action and make their guesses as a table after discussion rather than individuals.
7:00 pm – Drinks Reception: Guests arrive (in fancy dress if they dare) for pre-dinner drinks. Guests also get to meet the characters and find out who’s who before they sit down for dinner.
7:30 pm – Call for dinner: Guests are invited to sit down for dinner and the characters play out a short scene.
7:45 pm – The meal is served: The action takes place in-between courses, with the characters moving from table to table during the meal to converse, entertain and be questioned.
9:00 pm – Solve the crime: Before dessert, each table is invited to accuse one (or more) characters, and suggest the motive as to why the crime was committed.
9:30 pm – The murderer is discovered: A climactic finale is played out revealing the truth, and the killer gets his/her just desserts. Prizes can be awarded for the table who guessed closest to the truth, the best fancy dress, and a booby prize to the most ridiculously incorrect theory.
The show structure is split into 4 acts based around a three course meal, but can be altered to suit your event.
All our shows involve 4 professional actors who will play various characters, including the victim(s) and the murderer, however it can be fun for a private function to have some of the characters played by the guests; imagine a corporate event where the boss gets murdered.
Further simple parts or fun inclusions can be added in by request for birthdays or even just for those enthusiastic to take part. Most of our themes can be shortened or expanded upon if you want a shorter or even full day event.
Should you have specific requirements or want your own tailor made theme and event, we would be more than happy to discuss further options and make sure that your evening is totally unique and unforgettable.
Our Murder Mystery events cost £500 or £600 for a bespoke show.
